Virtual Orchid Judging is judging orchids online. It’s not quite the same as in-person judging, but it’s proving to be very worthwhile. While much of the orchid world has moved online in the past year, orchid judges must examine plants in person to give awards. With most shows still cancelled, online contests are a good alternative. No real awards are given, but there are lots of beautiful flowers and great educational opportunities. Growers submit detailed photos, videos, and measurements of their plants, and online participants assess and comment. Many are real orchid judges who have gone through years of training to hone their expertise. Anyone can enter an orchid. Everyone can learn how experts examine orchids, what qualities they look for, what resources they use, and what makes a prize-winning plant.
